A Note on Algebras that are Sums of Two Subalgebras
We study an associative algebra $A$ over an arbitrary field, that is a sum of two subalgebras $B$ and $C$ (i.e. $A=B+C$). We show that if $B$ is a right or left Artinian $PI$ algebra and $C$ is a $PI$ algebra, then $A$ is a $PI$ algebra. Additionally we generalize this result for semiprime algebras $A$. Consider the class of all semisimple finite dimensional algebras $A=B+C$ for some subalgebras $B$ and $C$ which satisfy given polynomial identities $f=0$ and $g=0$, respectively. We prove that all algebras in this class satisfy a common polynomial identity.

Lanski, Charles
The cardinality of the center of a $\PI$ ring
The main result shows that if $R$ is a semiprime ring satisfying a polynomial identity, and if $Z(R)$ is the center of $R$, then $\card R \leq 2^{\card Z(R)}$. Examples show that this bound can be achieved, and that the inequality fails to hold for rings which are not semiprime.
